Fullstack webdevelopment

"I always had an interest in tech, but other than my CU2 account I did not have any experience in coding whatsoever when I started at BSSA. Now I think working on the back-end is most fun. It sounds simple but it takes solid coding skills. It was really exciting to be able to do that. Overall I think this is a great career change for me to pursue!"



Fullstack webdevelopment

"The internet has lots to offer regarding learning how to code yourself. I tried and failed a lot. Practicing every day I reached a certain skill level in about a month. After that, I didn’t think I could improve any more by myself. Then I stumbled upon the BSSA. I loved coding there! Honestly, I can’t stop doing it. Almost daily you need to hand in an assignments, which is good because it keeps you sharp and helped me to learn really fast."

"I wanted a new challenge, something finicky, something I had to struggle for. I wanted to learn a hard skill and it needed to be a skill that gave me some freedom, because I have a lot of ambitions. Learning to code at BSSA is quite intense, but a lot of fun! It is a community kind of feel, I feel a lot of camaraderies. And I rediscovered an old passion of me which is math. It’s just a lot of fun to have these problems and solve them – like coding! I think a lot of people would like this."

“BSSA was a great environment to improve my programming skills and their network was really useful to find a great job where I could continue to develop myself. A lot of people try to figure coding out by themselves, but it goes so much faster in a classroom with classmates who are all focussed to become great coders."

Both the 3 month training and the 6 month traineeship are fulltime. Also take into account that learning a new skill is as rewarding as it is intensive, so make sure you have enough time for the occasional extra studying and recharging.
